Taste of Culture – Chinese cuisine

Location: Korte Leidsedwarsstraat (near Leidseplein)

As an Amsterdammer to discover this delicious chinese restaurant nearby the most touristy area is like finding a diamond in a rough, quite improbable I would say. After all, how do you consider an authentic chinese restaurant in Europe? This place, tick most boxes. It has a modest ambience, the chinese usually cares about efficiency so atmospheric venue is not really a concern. Service is also quite straight forward, the name of the dishes are also in chinese with english spelling.

My usual long time favorite chinese food in Amsterdam is of course New King which is not a secret to anyone who lives here. But the Peking Duck by Taste of Culture is a winning dish, the meat is tender and the skin is super crispy.

They also serve hotpot which I’m going to try tomorrow! so this story is to be continued.
